Usually I Photoshop out extraneous birds that are blurred or only partially in the picture frame. But sometimes I like the effect. The reality is, these beautiful birds were out there flying around the beautiful rolling hills of Brazil Ranch, and over a ridge line of happy Angus cattle, this past weekend and deserve to be included.
Lucky to have visited the Brazil Ranch in Tomales, while volunteering for MALT. But I couldn't resist adding car exhaust, using GrutBrushes, and a jeep photographed in Salem, Oregon, to make an alternate version of the original photo. The original says "calm, beauty of nature" while the modified version indicates "health hazards of too many vehicles on the road."
